7.6 Blocking

36.1413GPPBase Station (BS) conformance testingEvolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (E-UTRA)Release 17TS

7.6.1 Definition and applicability

The blocking characteristics is a measure of the receiver ability to receive a wanted signal at its assigned channel in the presence of an unwanted interferer, which are either a 1.4MHz, 3MHz or 5MHz E-UTRA signal for in‑band blocking or a CW signal for out-of-band blocking. The interfering E-UTRA signal shall be as specified in Annex C.

The blocking performance requirement applies as specified in the Tables 7.6-1, 7.6-1a, 7.6-1b, 7.6-1c, 7.6-1d, 7.6-1e, 7.6-2 and 7.6-2a in clause 7.6.5.

Unless otherwise stated, a BS declared to be capable of E-UTRA with NB-IoT in-band and guard band operations is only required to pass the blocking receiver tests for E-UTRA with guard band operation; it is not required to perform the blocking receiver tests again for E-UTRA with in-band operation.

7.6.2 Minimum Requirements

The minimum requirement is in TS 36.104 [2] subclause 7.6.1.

7.6.3 Test purpose

The test stresses the ability of the BS receiver to withstand high-level interference from unwanted signals at specified frequency offsets without undue degradation of its sensitivity.

7.6.4 Method of test

7.6.4.1 Initial conditions

Test environment: normal; see subclause D.2.

RF channels to be tested for single carrier: M see subclause 4.7. The BS shall be configured to operate as close to the centre of the operating band (see Table 5.5-1) as possible.

Base Station RF Bandwidth positions to be tested for multi-carrier and/or CA: MRFBW in single-band operation, see subclause 4.7.1; BRFBW_T’RFBW and B’RFBW_TRFBW in multi-band operation, see subclause 4.7.1.

In addition, in multi-band operation:

– For BRFBW_T’RFBW, out-of-band blocking testing above the highest operating band may be omitted

– For B’RFBW_TRFBW, out-of-band blocking testing below the lowest operating band may be omitted

Channel bandwidths to be tested:

a) In the interferer frequency range (FUL_low -20) MHz to (FUL_high +20) MHz the requirement shall be tested with the lowest and the highest bandwidth supported by the BS.

b) In the interferer frequency ranges 1 MHz to (FUL_low -20) MHz and (FUL_high +20) MHz to 12750 MHz the requirement shall be tested only with the lowest bandwidth supported by the BS.

1) Connect the signal generator for the wanted signal and the signal generator for the interfering signal to the antenna connector of one Rx port as shown in Annex I.2.5.

2) Terminate any other Rx port(s) not under test.

3) Generate the wanted signal according to reference measurement channel in annex A.1 to the BS under test. The level of the wanted signal measured at the BS antenna connector shall be set to the level specified in subclause 7.6.5.

7.6.4.2 Procedure

For E-UTRA and E-UTRA with NB-IoT in-band or guard band BS:

1) For FDD BS declared to be capable of single carrier operation only, start BS transmission according to E-TM 1.1 at manufacturer’s declared rated output power.

For a FDD BS declared to be capable of multi-carrier and/or CA operation, set the BS to transmit according to E-TM 1.1 on all carriers configured using the applicable test configuration and corresponding power setting specified in clause 4.10 and 4.11.

For BS declared to be capable of NB-IoT in-band or guard band operation single carrier operation only, start BS transmission according to E-TM 1.1 and N-TM at manufacturer’s declared rated output power.

For a BS declared to be capable of NB-IoT in-band or guard band operation multi-carrier, set the BS to transmit according to E-TM 1.1 on all E-UTRA carriers and to N-TM on all NB-IoT carriers configured using the applicable test configuration and corresponding power setting specified in clause 4.10 and 4.11.

The transmitter may be turned off for the out-of-band blocker tests when the frequency of the blocker is such that no IM2 or IM3 products fall inside the bandwidth of the wanted signal.

2) Adjust the signal generators to the type of interfering signals, levels and the frequency offsets as specified in Tables 7.6-1, 7.6-2 and 7.6-3 for E-UTRA Wide Area BS, in Tables 7.6-1a, 7.6-2 and 7.6-4 for E-UTRA Local Area BS, in Table 7.6-1b and 7.6-2 for E-UTRA Home BS, in Table 7.6-1c, 7.6.2 and 7.6-5 for E-UTRA Medium Range BS, in Tables 7.6-1e, 7.6-2b and 7.6-3 for NB-IoT in-band/guard band operation Wide Area BS, in Tables 7.6-1g, 7.6-2b and 7.6-3 for NB-IoT in-band/guard band operation Local Area BS, in Tables 7.6-1i, 7.6-2b and 7.6-3 for NB-IoT in-band/guard band operation Home BS, in Tables 7.6-1k, 7.6-2b and 7.6-3 for NB-IoT in-band/guard band operation Medium Range BS.

For each measured E-UTRA carrier, the throughput shall be ≥ 95% of the maximum throughput of the reference measurement channel, with a wanted and an interfering signal coupled to BS antenna input using the parameters in Tables 7.6-1, 7.6-1a, 7.6-1b, 7.6-1c and 7.6-2. The reference measurement channel for the wanted signal is specified in Tables 7.2-1, 7.2-2, 7.2-3 and 7.2-4 for each channel bandwidth and further specified in Annex A.

For each measured NB-IoT carrier, the throughput shall be ≥ 95% of the maximum throughput of the reference measurement channel, with a wanted and an interfering signal coupled to BS antenna input using the parameters in Tables 7.6-1d, 7.6-1e, 7.6-1f, 7.6-1g, 7.6-1h, 7.6-1i, 7.6-1j, 7.6-1k, 7.6-2a and 7.6-2b. The reference measurement channel for the wanted signal is specified in Table 7.2-5 for each subcarrier spacing option and further specified in Annex A.

The blocking requirement is always applicable outside the Base Station RF Bandwidth or Maximum Radio Bandwidth. The interfering signal offset is defined relative to the Base Station RF Bandwidth edges or Maximum Radio Bandwidth edges.

For a BS operating in non-contiguous spectrum within any operating band, the blocking requirement applies in addition inside any sub-block gap, in case the sub-block gap size is at least as wide as twice the interfering signal minimum offset in Table 7.6-2. The interfering signal offset is defined relative to the sub-block edges inside the sub-block gap.

For a BS capable of multi-band operation, the requirement in the in-band blocking frequency ranges applies for each supported operating band. The requirement applies in addition inside any Inter RF Bandwidth gap, in case the Inter RF Bandwidth gap size is at least as wide as twice the interfering signal minimum offset in Table 7.6-2.

For a BS capable of multi-band operation, the requirement in the out-of-band blocking frequency ranges apply for each operating band, with the exception that the in-band blocking frequency ranges of all supported operating bands according to Tables 7.6-1, 7.6-1a and 7.6-1c shall be excluded from the out-of-band blocking requirement.

For the Public Safety LTE BS in Korea from 718 to 728 MHz in band 28, the wanted and the interfering signal coupled to the BS antenna input are specified in Tables G-2.2, G-2.3, G-2.4 and G-2.5 for the band blocking requirements in annex G.2 of [2]. The reference measurement channel for the wanted signal is A.1-3 for 10 MHz channel bandwidth and further specified in Annex A.

Note*: PREFSENS depends on the channel bandwidth as specified in TS 36.104 [2] subclause 7.2.1.

Note**: For a BS capable of multiband operation, in case of interfering signal that is not in the in-band blocking frequency range of the operating band where the wanted signal is present, and not in the in-band blocking frequency range of an adjacent or overlapping operating band, the wanted signal mean power is equal to PREFSENS + 1.4 dB.

NOTE: Table 7.6-1c assumes that two operating bands, where the downlink operating band (see Table 5.5-1) of one band would be within the in-band blocking region of the other band, are not deployed in the same geographical area.

CW carrier

Note*: PREFSENS depends on the channel bandwidth or supported subcarrier spacing as specified in TS 36.104 [2] subclause 7.2.1.

Note**: For NB-IoT, up to 24 exceptions are allowed for spurious response frequencies in each wanted signal frequency when measured using a 1MHz step size. For these exceptions the above throughput requirement shall be met when the blocking signal is set to a level of -40 dBm for 15 kHz subcarrier spacing and -46 dBm for 3.75 kHz subcarrier spacing. In addition, each group of exceptions shall not exceed three contiguous measurements using a 1MHz step size.

NOTE: Table 7.6.1i assumes that two operating bands, where the downlink operating band (see Table 5.5-1) of one band would be within the in-band blocking region of the other band, are not deployed in the same geographical area.

Note*: PREFSENS depends on the channel bandwidth or supported subcarrier spacing as specified in TS 36.104 [2] subclause 7.2.1.

Note**: For a BS capable of multiband operation, in case of interfering signal that is not in the in-band blocking frequency range of the operating band where the wanted signal is present, and not in the in-band blocking frequency range of an adjacent or overlapping operating band, the wanted signal mean power is equal to PREFSENS + 1.4 dB.

Note***: For NB-IoT, up to 24 exceptions are allowed for spurious response frequencies in each wanted signal frequency when measured using a 1MHz step size. For these exceptions the above throughput requirement shall be met when the blocking signal is set to a level of -40 dBm for 15 kHz subcarrier spacing and -46 dBm for 3.75 kHz subcarrier spacing. In addition, each group of exceptions shall not exceed three contiguous measurements using a 1MHz step size.

NOTE: If the above Test Requirement differs from the Minimum Requirement then the Test Tolerance applied for this test is non-zero. The relationship between Minimum Requirements and Test Requirements is defined in subclause 4.1 and the explanation of how the Minimum Requirement has been relaxed by the Test Tolerance is given in Annex G.

7.6.5.2 Co-location with other base stations

This additional blocking requirement may be applied for the protection of E-UTRA BS or NB-IoT receivers when GSM, CMDA, UTRA, NR or E-UTRA BS operating in a different frequency band are co-located with an E-UTRA or NB-IoT BS. The requirement is applicable to all channel bandwidths supported by the E-UTRA BS.

The requirements in this clause assume a 30 dB coupling loss between interfering transmitter and E-UTRA or NB-IoT BS receiver and are based on co-location with base stations of the same class.

For each measured E-UTRA carrier, the throughput shall be ≥ 95% of the maximum throughput of the reference measurement channel, with a wanted and an interfering signal coupled to BS antenna input using the parameters in Table 7.6-3 for Wide Area BS, in Table 7.6-4 for Local Area BS and in Table 7.6-5 for Medium Range BS. The reference measurement channel for the wanted signal is specified in Tables 7.2-1, 7.2-2 and 7.2-4 for each channel bandwidth and further specified in Annex A.

For each measured NB-IoT carrier, the throughput shall be ≥ 95% of the maximum throughput of the reference measurement channel, with a wanted and an interfering signal coupled to BS antenna input using the parameters in Table 7.6-3 for Wide Area BS. The reference measurement channel for the wanted signal is specified in Tables 7.2-5 for each channel sub-carrier spacing option and further specified in Annex A.

Note*: PREFSENS is related to the channel bandwidth and specified in TS 36.104 [2] subclause 7.2.1.

Note**: For NB-IoT, up to 24 exceptions are allowed for spurious response frequencies in each wanted signal frequency when measured using a 1MHz step size. For these exceptions the above throughput requirement shall be met when the blocking signal is set to a level of -40 dBm for 15 kHz subcarrier spacing and -46 dBm for 3.75 kHz subcarrier spacing. In addition, each group of exceptions shall not exceed three contiguous measurements using a 1MHz step size.

NOTE 1: Except for a BS operating in Band 13, these requirements do not apply when the interfering signal falls within any of the supported uplink operating band or in the 10 MHz immediately outside any of the supported uplink operating band.
For a BS operating in band 13 the requirements do not apply when the interfering signal falls within the frequency range 768-797 MHz.

NOTE 2: Some combinations of bands may not be possible to co-site based on the requirements above. The current state-of-the-art technology does not allow a single generic solution for co-location of UTRA TDD or E-UTRA TDD with E-UTRA FDD on adjacent frequencies for 30dB BS-BS minimum coupling loss. However, there are certain site-engineering solutions that can be used. These techniques are addressed in TR 25.942 [11].

NOTE 3: For a BS operating in band 11, 21 or 74, the requirement for co-location with Band 32 applies for interfering signal within the frequency range 1475.9-1495.9 MHz.

NOTE 4: Co-located TDD base stations that are synchronized and using the same or adjacent operating band can receive without special co-location requirements. For unsynchronized base stations, special co-location requirements may apply that are not covered by the 3GPP specifications.

Note**: For NB-IoT, up to 24 exceptions are allowed for spurious response frequencies in each wanted signal frequency when measured using a 1MHz step size. For these exceptions the above throughput requirement shall be met when the blocking signal is set to a level of -40 dBm for 15 kHz subcarrier spacing and -46 dBm for 3.75 kHz subcarrier spacing. In addition, each group of exceptions shall not exceed three contiguous measurements using a 1MHz step size.

NOTE 1: Except for a BS operating in Band 13, these requirements do not apply when the interfering signal falls within any of the supported uplink operating band or in the 10 MHz immediately outside any of the supported uplink operating band.
For a BS operating in band 13 the requirements do not apply when the interfering signal falls within the frequency range 768-797 MHz.

NOTE 2: Some combinations of bands may not be possible to co-site based on the requirements above. The current state-of-the-art technology does not allow a single generic solution for co-location of UTRA TDD or E-UTRA TDD with E-UTRA FDD on adjacent frequencies for 30dB BS-BS minimum coupling loss. However, there are certain site-engineering solutions that can be used. These techniques are addressed in TR 25.942 [11].

NOTE 3: For a BS operating in band 11, 21 or 74, the requirement for co-location with Band 32 applies for interfering signal within the frequency range 1475.9-1495.9 MHz.

NOTE 4: Co-located TDD base stations that are synchronized and using the same or adjacent operating band can receive without special co-location requirements. For unsynchronized base stations, special co-location requirements may apply that are not covered by the 3GPP specifications.
